Therese Cummiskey took a long cut home to Fairfield, Iowa on December 1 and stopped at Moorhead Park in Ida Grove. Birder Don Poggensee met her there and with his expert guidance he showed her three owls within 20 minutes.
One was the exquisitely small and beautiful saw-whet owl whose photo is above. Therese reports that "It was a GOOD DAY."
Thank you, Therese, for permission to share your beautiful photo with visitors to Birdwatching Dot Com.
